PHISH RELEASES WALNUT CREEK DVD
Phish Walnut Creek, a brand new 2-DVD set, will be released August 5th, and is nowavailable for pre-order at Phish Dry Goods.
On July 22, 1997, Phish performed the second show of their U.S. summer tour at Walnut Creek Amphitheatre in Raleigh, NC through a torrent of rain, thunder and lightning. Rather than cancel the gig, the band played on with the music mirroring the peaks in the storm’s intensity. Highlights include “Down With Disease” that slowly segues into “Mike’s Song” – the first and only time these two classic tunes were ever paired together in such a way-as well as “Taste,” complete with near Biblical thunder and lightning display.
Overall the show is remembered as a significant example of Phish’s hallmark approach to group improvisation with the performances here characterized by an exceptionally democratic and refined balance of four musical voices. This 2-DVD set features more than 2 1/2 hours of 5-camera footage with 5.1 Dolby Surround or optional stereo sound.
Anyone who pre-orders the DVD from Dry Goods will receive “Phish: Left Nuts,” a bonus CD featuring more than 75 minutes of previously unreleased music from Phish’s past performances at Walnut Creek, produced specifically for this release.
